Very soothing. Nicely textured but not too busy. Interesting chord movement in the intro. The two changes/interludes? (I think there were two) meshed well with the main theme.

Hi Mario,

I like this composition very much. It's like the waves on a sunny day; coming and going.
The French horn has a very nice sound, I think David mentioned it before. It also gave the impression of a nice voice.
Very well done!

Hans

A most enjoyable listen during our morning coffee looking out over our
forest. Your performances are ace.

J&B

PS Hope our morning session was not overly conflicting with the sunset description smile

I like the melody and the instrumentation fits. This is a nice chill out song. Interesting twists in the chords used. I like your playing and kinda thought you should have played the guitar a bit more in it.

The guitar cuts through with the clean, clear sound the Cor Anglais needs when it's featured.
Probably a little too much reverb that blurrs the edges and moves it back.
On a stereo image not I'd have preferred to hear one of the percussive elements panned opposite the others.
Lovely composition.

Oh, yes, it is, Mario. You are a master at making the sounds of our lives. A wonderful melody in a captivating mix. It's like I can listen to you all day, and I guess I do even when I can't hear you. Makes sense to me.

Robert, thanx so much for listening and commenting. I like the sound of the French horn also.

Floyd, thanx for the shaker suggestion. You have excellent taste so I'm sure that you are right.

David, I'm glad that you liked it.

Ezekiel' Storm, thanx for noticing the chord progression. Toontrack's EZKeys has some great chord progressions.

Hans, Your comments made me very happy.

Scott, thanx for listening and those very nice comments.

J&B thanx. No your sunrise did not conflict with my sunset!

Herb, Thanx for noticing the chord progression. My next one will have a lot more guitar in it.

Ray, Thanx for the stereo image and reverb suggestions. I'll make a note of them so I don't make the same mistake twice.

Marty, I apologize for putting sounds in your head! Thanx for those very nice comments.

I appreciate each and every one of your comments, especially the constructive ones. Thanx again all for listening and commenting on my little ditties.

My comment echoes the term, Mario; you have become a master of visualized and descriptive mood music; an ordinary event as leaves falling from a tree becomes something special. Have you read James Joyce? In literature, he's known for that.

Thanx Greg. I would do music for a film if there weren't any pressure!

Ed, thanx so much for those super comments. No I have not read James Joyce.

Thanx for listening and commenting Moto.

TuneMonger, I am still a complete novice on the wind controller but thanx for those comments.

Thanx Mike.

A beautiful piece (or a beautiful peace), Mario.
The french horns are lovely, while the guitar entry subtly suggests the falling autumn leaves.
As others have suggested, the strings could be just a tad overpowering in places but, overall, it's another excellent work from Mario's Chillharmonic Orchestra.
Cheers,
Mike

Mario: James Joyce, considered possibly the most influential writer of the 20th century, published "Ulysses" in 1922. The book revolutionized the movies. The first movie with sound came out in 1927. Here's an example from the book, best as memory can recall it. As Stephen walks along a flag stone path, his attention is on the stones as they pass through his field of vision. He records his thoughts, as if thinking out loud, while continuing to watch.
In that example, we see (1) what would later become famous as "stream of consciousness," and (2) the suggestion of a movie staple, the narration track.
I happened to be reading some Joyce during the time of hearing your "Sunset," and was struck by the character of it. Keep up the good work, Mario.
